There’s not a doubt in my mind that Nikki and Tyler are the real deal. They’ve got a love that beams through every single photo Alea Lovely snaps, from their stunning engagement session to part one of their wedding day. And while their ballroom reception was designed to a T by Madison Sanders Events, it was moments like these that really stole the show. Cheers to the newlyweds, and the adventure ahead!
“The reception was beautiful and we danced the night away…
It truly was magical, yet over way too quickly.”
From Madison of Madison Sanders Events… Nikki came to me around 6 months out from her wedding. At this time, she had selected both the ceremony and reception venues and had a general vision for the day. I was able to assist Nikki in pulling together the pieces that would bring that vision to life. We worked with her and her vendors to bring in elements that would give an elegant and romantic feel to the day.
Our main goal was that the day would be a strong representation of both she and Tyler’s tastes. This meant incorporating feminine, fun details while also keeping our design classic and traditional. One of my favorite parts of the design was the pop of “marsala” that she decided to incorporate into her floral in the final month. As we discussed the seasonality of her event, we realized that this beautiful hue would add depth to her design and would tie in some of the rich tones already present in Kansas City’s fall season.
Nikki devotes a lot of her time to her work and to her patients and because of this, did not have a lot of time to spend planning the wedding. It was so exciting for her to be able to arrive on site the day of the wedding without a worry and for her to enjoy each detail we had planned. I am so grateful for her trust in us to bring her dreams to life and wish the VanLoos all the best as they begin their marriage!
